This site is for mothers of kids in the U.S. Navy and for Moms who have questions about Navy life for their kids.
FIRST TIME HERE?
Follow these steps to get started!
Choose your Username. For the privacy and safety of you and/or your sailor, no last names are allowed, even if your last name differs. Also, please do not include your email address in your user name. Go to "Settings" above to set your Username. While there, complete your Profile so you can post and share photos and videos of your Sailor and share stories with other moms!
Join groups! Browse for groups for your PIR date, your sailor's occupational specialty, "A" school, assigned ship, homeport city, your own city or state, and a myriad of other interests. Jump in and introduce yourself! Start making friends that can last a lifetime.
Since you have a Sailor, you can change "At Boot Camp now" above to “Enlisted.”
You can also update your "A little about me:" section to indicate that you have two Sailors.
If you get an error message, then look at the area/s in the error message and unclick all of the choices in the area/s and make choices closer to the question/s. Some choices may have changed since you joined.
Penny, be sure to make the other changes that I sent previously in a PM. (PM's are in the Inbox in the upper left.)
BTW, there are "Sailors" and there are "Recruits", but there is no such thing as a "Sailor Recruit." SR stands for "Seaman Recruit" and is what all recruits are considered while in BC regardless of what they will be after BC. See the Page, What does ??? mean? (A Guide to Navy Abbreviations and Terminology), to help you with many of the new terms you will come across.
Master at Arms is a rating very dear to my heart since my Sailor was an MA. Join San Antonio MA's; the discussion, Break down week by week, will let you know what happens at NTTC Lackland (San Antonio). You will also want to join MAA Moms. Other groups to check out are New MAA Mom's (it has not been very active) and Security Sailors (it is not very active and includes loved ones of Sailors from other ratings as well).
What is your future Sialor’s rating (job/occupational specialty) or field going to be? There are groups for most specialties and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend.
